Two-Step Delivery Method Ups Cancer Drug’s Concentration In Tumors
Researchers report that cancer therapies involving drugs such as Taxol (paclitaxel) might be made more effective if clinicians did the two-step when administering them. The team found that a two-step procedure—delivering a tumor-localizing, drug-absorbing nanoparticle followed by the actual therapeutic—can increase the amount of drug that reaches tumor cells and the amount of time the drug acts on the cells (Scientific Reports 2016, DOI: 10.1038/srep18720).
